Tom Brady Calls Potential Patriots Draftee Lamar Jackson a “Beast” in Instagram Comment (PIC)
It’s no secret that the New England Patriots are on the hunt for the quarterback who will eventually take over for Tom Brady. The legendary quarterback will be 41 years old by the start of next season, and despite drinking all the right water and doing all the right stretches, he will not actually play forever.
Luckily, there are a lot of excellent quarterbacks to choose from in the 2018 NFL Draft. And this week, Bleacher Report’s Mike Freeman reported that the Patriots have their eyes set on Heisman Trophy winner Lamar Jackson.
So what does Tom Brady think about the Patriots possibly drafting Lamar Jackson? Apparently he approves.
The NFL Network published an Instagram post on Thursday explaining why Bill Belichick is interested in Jackson, to which Tom Brady replied—and I quote—”he’s a beast,” followed by four exclamation points and a thumbs up emoji.

You know who was really happy about this apparent endorsement? Lamar Jackson:

If the Patriots were trying to keep their draft board a secret, apparently nobody told that to Tom Brady.
Personally I like to think Brady is trying to sabotage the Patriots’ plans so they don’t get their hands on Lamar Jackson. There’s no way that’s true, but conspiracy theories about the Patriots are so much fun.
